The year must have been 1954 or 5, as I was born in 1949 and had just moved up from infants, I am on the mat in front to the right hand side. My pal Derick Lodge is in the front row on the left in front of Mrs. Marsh, Im afraid thats all I remember at the moment, I'll have another look later though, I still have my own original copy in good nick too.
